bragging about them. they post signs advertising them. in doing so they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. however our nation's priorities gotten so far out of order? think about it. we care about our money, so we protect our banks with armed guards. american airports, office buildings, power plants, courthouses, even sports stadiums are all protected by armed security. we care about our president so we protect him with armed secret service agents. members of congress work in offices surrounded by capitol police officers. yet when it comes to our most beloved, innocent, and vulnerable members of the american family, our children, we as a society leave them every day utterly defenseless. the monsters and the predators of the world know it and exploit it. that must change now. the truth is -- >> nra, stop killing our children. it is the nra killing our children. not armed -- not armed teachers. we have to end the violence. we have to stop the killing. stop the killing in our schools. stop the killing in our homes.

and to that point you talk about guns as an infectious disease in america. we have 300 million guns in america. almost one per citizen. is the disease too far in to the body to really do something? we have senator feinstein talking about banning assault weapons and can't talk about retroactively banning. we can only talk about going forward. are there too many guns for america to be able to go back? >> i don't really think so at all. we can make a big dent. i can talk about where i'm from which is massachusetts and we have sensible gun control laws and it's very hard for criminals in massachusetts to get guns from massachusetts and so what they have to do is somebody brings guns in to them from new hampshire and vermont and then south carolina up the iron pipeline. we would do very well in massachusetts if we had a one gun per month law nationally to make it so it's not profitable to bring guns in to the inner city gangs. i think there's lots of things to do. and i just want to mention one thing which gun owners can do. we are trying to push this notion of the 11th commandment of gun safety an

in on gurneys, and across america it's a scene that tragically plays out time and again. abc news discovered, on average, well over 200 fatal bus crashes take place every year in the u.s., with more than 12,000 nonfatal crashes. and more than 15,000 people injured. just last week, a 6-year-old boy died when a bus crashed into the long island home where the boy was asleep in bed. and in july, a tour bus crashed into this barrier outside of new rochelle, new york. with the bus going too fast for the slick roads. injuring all 24 people on board. back in miami, it turns out that the driver here, even mowed down a sign warning vehicles more than 8 feet tall to turn around. police say they don't know whether they'll file charges against that driver. his bus belongs to the miami bus service. a company that we found had three violations last year related to driver fatigue. ron, it's too early to tell if that played any role in this crash. >>> a frightening scene this morning on a highway in japan where at least three people were killed when part of a tunnel collapsed outside of tokyo. the company th
